Another Wolfgang Puck restaurant in Las Vegas? Skeptics, take note: this is one of the most perfectly orchestrated steakhouse on the Strip. Imported from Beverly Hills to the Palazzo, Cut has a moneyed, mod California vibe, from the plants outside the door to the whimsical contemporary art on the walls and sofa-style banquettes that feel heavenly to sink into. Swing by the lounge for cocktails or to test drive the superb wine list, and you might just end up staying for a full multi-course dinner.
When it comes to serious steaks, take your pick of dry-aged beef from Illinois, grain-fed beef from Nebraska or richly marbled wagyu-style beef imported from Japan (stay away from the cheaper American version, though). Try out at least a couple of dipping sauces (our faves were the Argentinean chimichurri and the wasabi-yuzu butter). Side dishes are not just an after-thought, and some almost steal the show, like the supersized potato tarte tatin or the cauliflower with golden raisins and toasted almonds. Desserts are equally impressive, whether it’s nouveau baked Alaska with passion fruit stracciatella or a Valrhona chocolate soufflé.
